Road Trip Yarn

Our trip was amazing! I'm glad to be home though. Some pics of the recent purchases while on the road:

Pattern and matterial to make knitting needle cases. I have been looking for something like this for a while now and the material in the US is SOOOO much cheaper than Canada so I simply had to pick this up.

Of course, more sock yarn mmmmmm... sock yarn. All from Portland's friendly Knit Purl

And a new project from Seattle's So Much Yarn, which is by far one of the nicest yarn stores I have ever visited.

And of course I knit while I was away, Hedras

The second one was started in Vancouver and I got about half way down the leg on the ferry trip home. I'll finish it up on the bus this week probably. Now... do I resist the urge to cast on numberous projects right now with this new yarn... OR, do I pick up MS3 which has been staring at me ever since I got home?

Just a note - it's not that fabric is cheaper in the US than in Canada, it's the chain stores we have in Victoria that are expensive. :) Fabric shopping in Vancouver is usually half the price, sometimes even lower. Your needle holder looks good!
